Global Art & Design Education Expo 2021 - Spring Edition

The 2nd edition of the Global Art & Design Education Expo was held virtually, on April 24, 2021. The expo was a huge success! 13 leading Art & Design universities participated. The event attracted students from 1040+ schools and colleges and 400+ cities and towns across India.

Students enjoyed some amazing breakout sessions at the event. They learnt about product design trends, received portfolio tips and were exposed to creative careers that are likely to do well in the 21st century.

The expo provided a common platform to the institutes offering programs in Art & Design, students interested in this field and industry leaders; to network and engage. The testimonials we received from students described the event as informative, interactive, insightful and creative. We’re delighted to keep doing focused work and adding value to all stakeholders.
